Happy November! Lean meats are one of The OrganWise Guys Foods of the Month this month. Did you know that red meat can be healthy? Sirloin steak is a lean red meat that is very low in fat and loaded with protein. Sirloin steak becomes even healthier when you cook it with lots of vegetables. This recipe for Sirloin Philly Cheesesteaks will satisfy both health food fans and comfort food lovers alike.
We love that this recipe is a healthy take on a typically not-so-healthy dish. By adding tons of sautéed vegetables like onions and peppers, there are more vitamins and fiber. The cheese provides some calcium and dairy and the whole grain buns help us to feel full. Read the recipe for how to make this simple, yet totally satisfying weeknight meal.
